Help needed to get Mama back home Month later, family still fights to get back into home damaged by fire

WANT TO HELP? Call Kerry McKenzie 704-905-7908 to find out how you can help or donate to the Vivian Williams Help Fund at any Alliance Bank & Trust branch.

Since then, the Kings Mountain man has worked to rally support, seeking volunteer labor and supplies needed to help the family move back into their home. No one died in the blaze and for that the family is eternally grateful. But rebuilding their lives from the ashes has not been easy. What remains of a houseful of belongings now fills half of a 10-foot-by10-foot storage unit. With a pink pacifier in her mouth and her father close behind, two-year-old Summer Bell padded quietly through the empty smoke-stained front room of the only home she's known. No toys in sight.


Kerry McKenzie stands in what was once the back bedrooms of her mother's home at 131 Kristie Lane. The rooms were destroyed by a fire on June 27. The family of six was rendered homeless by the blaze. McKenzie and a few volunteers are working hard to repair what is left of the house to get her family back home. To see how you can help, call Kerry McKenzie at EMILY WEAVER / HERALD 704-905-7908.

Sixty-eight-year-old Vicki Williams sat on the screenedin front porch of what is left of her home at 131 Kristie Lane Monday afternoon fighting off the heat. Tears trickled down her cheeks as she remembered the June 27th early-morning fire that left her and five others homeless. "I cried, 'Oh God what am I going to do?'" she said. Minutes later a Kings Mountain man, who had read about the tragedy in the newspaper, called to help. "He said 'God led me to call you'," smiled Vicki's daughter Kerry McKenzie.

‘Dark Knight’ victim had ties to KM native ELIZABETH STEWART

The deadly massacre of 12 people in Aurora, Colorado and the injuring of 58 other movie-goers Friday shocked the country and hit home to Kings Mountain friends of one of the victims. Rebecca Wingo, 32, a working mother pursuing a college degree, was the former wife of Robert Wingo Jr., 35, who grew up in Kings Mountain and graduated from Kings Mountain High School in 1995. ''Keep us in your prayers,'' said Robert Wingo Jr. to Betsy Wells, a retired Kings Mountain teacher whose son, Hart, was in his graduating class and keeps in touch with him on Facebook. Wingo posted on Facebook that the mother of their two daughters, Jaelyn and Jewel, was a victim. He asked that ''everyone be thinking of us at this time.'' Marcus Weaver, who took two bullets to his right arm, told television reporters that he tried to shield the body of his friend and another woman and tried to get help. Authorities identified the gunman as James Holmes, 24, a neuroscience student at the University of Colorado-Denver, who was arrested behind a car at the theatre where ''The Dark Knight Rises,'' was premiering to a full house. ''My heart goes out to all the families,'' said Betsy Wells, who sent condolences to Wingo and learned that Horan & See DARK KNIGHT, 5A

KM’s Dremiel Byers gets 2nd shot at Olympic gold Kings Mountain’s Dremiel Byers is in London this week preparing for Friday’s opening of the Summer Olympics. Byers, a heavyweight wrestler in the Greco-Roman division, is making his second straight trip to the Olympics after winning the recent U.S. Olympic Trials in Iowa City, Iowa. Byers finished seventh in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China, but was disappointed in that showing. He said he took his opening round opponent lightly and has now has set his sights on winning the Gold medal in London. Byers, 37, began his wrestling career at Kings Mountain High School where he was 1993 North Carolina State Champion. He thought his wrestling career was over when he went to North Carolina A&T on a football scholarship, but he resurfaced as a wrestler in 1999 with the U.S. Army World Class team in Col-

orado Springs, CO. “This is a big opportunity for me,” Byers says of the 2012 Olympics, which officially opens early Friday morning (London time) with the completion of the Torch Run. “It’s real important to make good on this one,” Byers said. “I don’t want to sit back and wait. Some of the guys are young and they come right at you. This time I’m going to put them in their place as soon as the whistle blows. I want to take points when I can get them. I’m not going to stop until the whistle blows. “There’s going to be a sense of urgency this time, because the last time I didn’t score,” he said. “That’s not my way. I am going to go out and get the points.” Like anyone else, Byers would love end his career as Olympic champion, but at this time he says he has no plans to retire anytime soon. “I still feel like I can keep going and be a world contender,” he says. “I feel some pain in my back sometimes. I guess that’s old age.”

DREMIEL BYERS Many of his Kings Mountain friends and relatives will be following Byers’ Olympic gold quest via TV, internet, texts and other media. “I’m very proud of the support of the people back home,” he said. “I know they are all rooting for me. I promise them I will give my best effort. They can count on me to do all I can to make sure this happens.”

cluding over 60,000 black belts, ATA is North America's largest martial arts organization dedicated to the discipline of Taekwondo. Goforth grew up in Kings Mountain singing in churches, school and anywhere she could. After graduating from Kings Mountain High, she moved to See GOFORTH, 5A

The ‘Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’ is already benefitting Americans Letter to the Editor: As a volunteer for the Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Insurance, I am kept updated with information concerning the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”. It is helpful for all of us to know how this reform is already benefitting the American people. - Lets millions of young adults stay on parents’ insurance until age 26. - Ends insurance company power to cap the amount of care a person can receive in their lifetime. - Stops insurance companies from canceling coverage when someone gets sick. - Lowers the cost of care for those on Medicare and helps seniors save money on their medication. - Requires insurance companies to cover preventive services like mammograms free of charge. - Strengthens and protects Medicare by increasing penalties for fraud. - Stops insurance companies from denying coverage to children with pre-existing conditions. - Ends insurance company power to jack up rates without justification. - Provides Americans with rebates from insurers who spend too much on CEO bonuses or ads. - Gives tax credits to small business owners so they can afford to offer quality health care for employees.


- Builds and improves hundreds of community health centers. - Gives hard-working Americans tax credits so they can afford insurance beginning in 2014. - Ends discrimination against adults with preexisting conditions beginning in 2014. For years we have, by law, been required to buy liability insurance to own and operate a motor vehicle and homeowners insurance when buying a home. The healthcare law is no different in that respect, and it will cover millions who are being denied coverage. If someone chooses not to buy health insurance, they will still have to pay into the system (by way of the IRS) so that those who do buy coverage will not be charged more in order to cover the inevitable care someone uninsured will need. This Act is not a “healthcare takeover”, nor is it a product of “dictatorship”, as some would like us to believe. It could probably be called “democracy”: affording every citizen an opportunity to get health care when they are sick. In January 2011, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that repealing the health care reform would increase the deficit by a total of $230 billion over 10 years. Other useful information about health care reform can be found at

Few misconceptions in last week’s letter To the Editor: I read with interest the letter in the July 4th edition of the “Kings Mountain Herald” connecting the Declaration of Independence with the urgent need to defeat President Obama in November. The writer is entitled to his opinion, but his letter contains a few misconceptions about our history. First of all, the Revolutionary War was not fought because of “unfair taxation.” In the Declaration, Thomas Jefferson condemns King George III “For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent,” which came to be known as “taxation without representation.” We do have representation today, in the form of the U.S. Congress. Second, “freedom of religion” was not a cause of the war. The Declaration doesn’t mention religion until the final sentence:

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” When the U.S. Constitution was written in 1787, religion was also not a factor. The first mention of religion was in 1791, when the First Amendment (“Congress shall make no law” establishing a religion.) was added. Many of the framers of the Constitution were descendants of the Pilgrims, who immigrated to America in 1620 to escape religious persecution by the Church of England, which was headed by the King. The statement “religious rights have been lost to those who are unreligious” makes no sense to me. Freedom of religion means we are free to practice any religion without fear of persecution – or, if we so wish, no religion. Furthermore, if we do not like the way our elected representatives “think” for us, then we are of course free to vote them out of office.

Police chase ends with detonation of bomb A police chase Thursday ended for a Charlotte fugitive at Exit 5, Dxon School Road in Kings Mountain, as a bomb threat tied up I-85 northbound traffic for nearly two hours. Wanted on South Carolina warrants, Anthony Carpenter

had allegedly attacked a South Carolina deputy and the chase led into Cleveland County and resulted in the denotation of a small explosive found in the back of the man's four-door Toyota Avalon.

Carpenter was treated at Cleveland Regional Medical Center for wounds he sustained in an altercation with the deputy.

Cleveland County illusionist couple tries to make $1M appear KYRA A. TURNER

Not only does America have talent, North Carolina has it too. Magician team Hawley Magic, wife and husband duo Jonathan and Trisha Hawley from Shelby, definitely have talent. The illusionist couple tried out for "Americas Got Talent" in Tampa, Florida for the 2012 season. With a "yes" from each of the three judges, Hawley Magic went on to the Las Vegas round and moved up to the New York round, where they performed live and were one of the top 48 acts out of hundreds who auditioned. "We went on the show on a whim, seeing how far we could go," Trisha said. "We were just looking for a job. We never dreamed we would be in the top 48." Trisha, who grew up in Shelby and is a graduate of Shelby High, met Jonathan, on a cruise ship where they were dancers, over a decade ago. They came across a magician that sparked their interest in illusions. The Hawleys had been performing on cruise ships for the past nine years and hadn't had anything since Sept. of 2011. With business being slow, the Hawley's lived in Trisha's parents basement. "At the New York audition Howard Stern commented that we could now get out of our parent's basement," Jonathan said. "We have not gotten out yet." "We are very lucky to have the amazing par-

ents we have," Trisha said. "Both of our families invested in illusions. They gave us what they could because they believe in us so much. We'd just like to pay them back and give our parents back their house." Ann Hoyle, from Kings Mountain, said that she knew Trisha and her family when the Hoyles used to live in Shelby. "We lived right down the street," Hoyle said. "Its so exciting for them to be on 'Americas Got Talent' and they are a great couple." Even with an amazingly dangerous illusion on one of the quarter final shows of 'Americas Got Talent', during which Trisha balanced her back on a sword that is standing before the sword "went through her" without leaving a scratch, and even though all the judges loved the trick, Hawley Magic had to take the trip back home after getting eliminated. Howie Mandel even said he had never seen a trick where the husband made a "wife-kabob". "We were very blessed to be on the show and made many friends," Jonathan said. "This will probably be the highlight of our career. This was on live television with millions of people watching." With things looking up with all the needed exposure and publicity, what's next for Hawley Magic? "We have had a couple of interests but haven't settled on something permanent yet," Jonathan and Trisha said. "Who knows, we could be one of the wild card picks and be back on 'Americas Got Talent'."

Synopsis: Annie Nations (Eleanor Wixson), an indomitable Appalachian widow of 79, lives on her mountain farm with the acerbic ghost of her husband, Hector (Steve Austin). Her tranquility is threatened by a brash real estate developer (Caroline Dedmon)

who wants to turn her land into a vacation resort and by concern over her son, Dillard (Robert Jenkins), a country singer who has come home with two stranded children because his wife has run away. Annie's battle to decide her future takes her through some funny, touching, and magical flashbacks to her life with Hector. Dillard, still singing the music which used to infuriate his father, has an exuberant scene in which the audience becomes his public at a fairground concert. Can Dillard woo his mother away from the recalcitrant ghost? Will development swallow up the family farm? Only Annie can decide. KMLT’s cast also includes

David Baez as the country doctor and Brenna Burgess as Holly Burrell. Members of local bluegrass group the Blue Band are featured with Dillard as the Stoney Lonesome Band. Band members include Pete Sutton (guitar), Aaron Clark (banjo), Junior Costner (base guitar), and Jimmy Ferrill (mandolin). “Foxfire” is a play by Susan Cooper and Hume Cronyn based on the Foxfire books, about Appalachian culture and traditions in north Georgia. The 1982 Broadway production starred Jessica Tandy as Annie Nations and Cronyn as Hector. KMLT is supported in part by a Grassroots grant from the North Carolina Arts Council and is a funded affiliate of the Cleveland County Arts Council.

Eagle Scout project at Kings Mountain park garners high accolades for Myers Eagle Scout Tyler Myers of Troop 101 First Baptist Church in Shelby was awarded the Piedmont Council Eagle Scout Project of the Year Award and The Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award for the Southern Region of the Boy Scouts of America.

The awards were presented by Camp Bud Schiele Assistant Camp Director Paul Odom during the closing campfire ceremony on Friday June 29. Odom read a letter from C. William Steele, Director of Alumni Relations and the National Eagle Scout Association, thanking Myers for submitting an inspiring Eagle Scout

project that benefited his community and inspired younger Scouts. Along with two framed certificates and a gold device to wear on his Eagle Scout square knot, Myers received a $500 check for future educational purposes or an international or national Scouting event or facility. Myers placed first in his

council out of 174 Eagle Scouts from 9 districts and 11 counties with a service project at Kings Mountain State Park. His project entailed constructing two stairways, a stone creek crossing, three bridges, and one-half mile of lakeside trail leading to a split-rail fenced overlook with two benches. The project required 1,376 hours

of labor from 51 volunteers and cost over $7,500 from 124 sponsors. As a recipient of the Southern Region award, Myers placed first out of every council nomination in 11 states and advanced to the top four Eagle Scout Service Projects in the nation. “I wasn’t considering any accolades when I planned

this project,” Myers pointed out, “I just wanted my Eagle award to be significant to me and reflect the value of the rank.” Myers plans to use the scholarship for an upcoming backpacking trek to Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico this August.

HELP: still needed to get family of six back in home after devastating fire June 27th FROM Page 1 In many ways the family is starting from scratch. Vicki had no insurance to cover the costs of repairs or lost items. Her $600-a-month social security check only goes so far. "It's just really tough now," McKenzie said. "We're just reaching out to the community now, something we've never done before." They had hoped to rebuild the two bedrooms at the back of the home that were stolen by the fire, but that hope is fading. Days have turned into weeks and now all the family wants is to move back into what's left of their home. "We just need to get her back in her house," McKenzie said, adding that the fire has brought them all to their knees in prayer. She has been working at the house every day since the fire. From morning until night, McKenzie and a few others have been cleaning and salvaging all they can to make the home livable. A codes inspector stopped by Monday to tell McKenzie what work needed to be done for the dwelling to pass inspection. Walls need to come down and part of a roof. Fire crept into the sheetrock of the rear wall of the house's living room. That wall - now destined to be the home's new back exterior, will have to be rebuilt. A local electrician has offered his services to get the house's power back on once rebuilding efforts are complete. But volunteers have been hard to find and the weather doesn't always cooperate.

Vicki shared the two bedroom white frame house, built by her family, with her 60-year-old caretaker, Deanna Powell, grandsons Timothy and Joshua Bell, her great granddaughter, 2-year-old Summer Dawn Bell, and Summer's mother, Angela Walker. Because of heavy smoke and Vicki's breathing problems, she can't stay in any part of the house. Vicki is staying with her daughter, but McKenzie and her family live in a two bedroom house which won't accommodate all the family. Vicki has raised her grandchildren since the murder of her daughter, Dawn Bell, on Jan. 9, 1998. McKenzie is her only surviving child. Before her bout with heart and lung problems, Vicki worked at several restaurants in town, including Fred Kiser's Minit Grill and at the Country Club. The added stress of the fire landed her in the hospital for four days. She wiped a tear away, remembering her longtime pet parrot, "Chico", who died in the fire. He was a bird of many words. He was family. "He could laugh and sound just like her," Powell said, with a smile. The June 27th fire was thought to have sparked from burning embers that remained in a charcoal grill used the night before for a cook-out celebrating Summer's second birthday. The blaze extended into the bedrooms at the back of the house, burned the deck away and smoke-damaged the rest of the home. Powell awoke to smoke and intense heat at 5:30 a.m. and saw a wall of flames. While she rushed everyone out of the home and they called for help, Josh grabbed a garden hose and

fought the fire. Firefighters from Oak Grove, Waco, and Bethlehem battled the blaze for 20 minutes before bringing it under control. "It was hard for them to leave home," McKenzie said. Vicki had just renovated a portion of the house, which was formerly her parents' home, about a year ago. The dwelling was originally an old frame church, which her family helped build. It has now been home to at least four generations of Vicki's family. McKenzie hopes that local churches or civic groups will adopt a room of the home to help with renovating efforts, and with the appliances, furniture, food and clothing the family will need once the house is repaired. Alliance Bank & Trust is accepting donations to the Vivian Williams Help Fund at its branches in Kings Mountain, Shelby and Gastonia. As of Monday, five donors had brought the collection up to almost $500. The family is grateful for every penny, kind word, prayer and good deed. To find out how you can help, call Kerry McKenzie at 704905-7908. Lib Stewart contributed to this report.

Harold’s Weekly Health Tip... Understanding Heat-Related Illness -- the Basics What Are Heat-Related Illnesses? Prolonged or intense exposure to hot temperatures can cause heat-related illnesses, such as heat exhaustion, heat cramps, and heat stroke (also known as sun stroke). As your body works to cool itself under extreme or prolonged heat, blood rushes to the surface of your skin. As a result, less blood reaches your brain, muscles, and other organs. This can interfere with both your physical strength and your mental capacity, leading, in some cases, to serious danger. By reducing excessive exposure to high temperatures and taking other precautionary steps, most heat-related illnesses can be avoided. Those who work in hot or humid environments -- such as manufacturing plants, bakeries, or construction sites during summer months -- are most at risk. However, even long, hot afternoons at the beach can pose problems if warning signs are ignored. With prompt treatment, most people recover completely from heat illness. However, heat stroke can be deadly if not properly managed.

A group of youth from Christ the King (Kings Mountain) and St. Mary Help of Christians (Shelby) Catholic churches recently returned from serving on a mission trip in Louisville, KY. Attending from Kings Mountain were Nathan Bennett and Jack Zyble; and chaperones Stephanie Gardner and Martin and Carmen Faulmino. The trip, through Catholic Heart Workcamps,

lasted 7 days and consisted of serving others by doing works such as repairing homes, providing yard work, working at day cares, homeless shelters, food pantries and nursing homes. In the evenings the teens had the opportunity to partake in Eucharistic celebrations, music, skits and fellowship. Catholic Heart Workcamps serve over 100 communities throughout the U.S. with over 12,000 volunteers annually.

11-12 all-stars eliminated from state tournament Kings Mountain was eliminated by South Park 72 in the 11-12 year-old state Dixie Youth baseball tournament last week in Leland. South Park went on to win the state championship over Montgomery County and will represent North Carolina in the World Series. Kings Mountain pitcher David Bell and some good defense retired South Park in order in the first two innings, but the eventual winners scored seven runs in the third to take command. Kings Mountain scored its only two runs in the sixth inning. Philip Barrett drew a

walk and Cameron Eason bunted for a base hit. Joey Blanton reached base on an error and Barrett and Eason both scored on a throwing error. Bell and Hunter Cash followed with base hits. Collin Franks hit a shot to third but the South Park third baseman dove for the ball and tagged out the runner coming from second base to end the game. Kings Mountain turned some good defensive plays in the first inning to keep South Park at bay, and Bell struck out their number four, five and six hitters in the sec-

ond inning. After South Park took the lead in the third, Matthew Huffstetler came on to pitch and held them scoreless the rest of the game. Bell, Travis Wright, Joey Blanton, Barrett, Franks and Eason played good defense for Kings Mountain, and Blanton also had a hard hit to center field. Kings Mountain, the District 3 runner-up, had a 2-2 record in the state tournament. Team sponsors were Bill Parker and Parker’s Amaco, Bobby Etters and Smoky Mountain BBQ, people who bought tickets for a


BBQ fund-raiser, Simmons Machine, Dramar Machine, J&L Machine, Chapman Machine, Casey Wallace and the Kings Mountain Family YMCA.

Collin Franks earned the right to represent the Kings Mountain All-Stars in the recent Home Run Derby at the State Dixie Majors Tournament in Leland. He hit 5 home runs during the Derby. The fields were the same size as the ball fields in Kings Mountain, with a 14-foot-high fence. Collin was in 5th place out of 16 teams represented. The winner hit 11 home runs. During the tournament, Collin went 6 for 10 and was hit by a pitch for a walk.

Your ‘Fruitful’ Tips with Jason Rhodes

Tomatoes... Tomatoes are so popular today it is hard to believe that extensive commercial production in the United States did not begin until about 1884. Tomatoes which have the best taste are those which have been allowed to ripen completely before being picked. Choose fully ripe tomatoes which are unblemished, slightly soft, with an overall rich red color. Two and a half to three and a half pounds will make one quart of canned tomatoes To ripen, spread out tomatoes in an area at about 60-70 degrees F, but ripen away from bright light. Fully ripe tomatoes should be kept uncovered in the refrigerator where the cold will inhibit the ripening process. Use them within a week.
